Sherele, Guadalajara’s premier Klezmer band will be performing at the Los Arcos Amphitheater on Wednesday, May 7 at 8 pm. FREE
Sherele is a klezmer ensemble; an East European-Jewish traditional genre that combines exceptional emotional and spiritual richness. Its rhythmic liveliness, melodic strength and great expressivity, combined with its emphasis on improvisation and spontaneous interactions, make it a great medium for the flourishing of a universal spirit. As one of the very few klezmer groups in Mexico and the only one (yet) in Guadalajara, Sherele enthusiastically engages and transmits this ancestral musical tradition that enjoys a contemporary re-birth and vogue because of its inherent cross-cultural character.
Sherele is a quartet that combines the diverse geographies and cultures of its musicians. The experience of living abroad, of engaging different cultures and of both questioning and missing a homeland, inevitably determine and nurture Sherele’s interpretation of klezmer music. Sherele’s arrangements of traditional klezmer repertoire often combine elements from jazz, tango, rock and Argentine and Mexican folklores.
